Corruption in Mexico, Boko Haram and more

(This show originally aired on July 17, 2015)

This week on “Fed Access”, Scott Stewart, vice president of Tactical Analysis at Stratfor, joins host Derrick Dortch to discuss Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s escape from a maximum security prison in Mexico.

Scott gives his thoughts on the escape, how it happened, and its impact on the drug trade and drug cartels in Mexico, and whether it will lead to violence along the U.S.  border with Mexico.

Later in the program, Mark Schroeder, vice president of  International Operations at Stratfor, will explain the complaints that some African nations have against the International Criminal Court,  and what would happen if the nations in question refuse to abide by the court’s decisions.

He will also give us an update on Boko Haram’s terrorist activities in Nigeria, and whether newly elected Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, is succeeding in his plan to defeat the terrorist group, and drive it out of the war torn country.
